This was on one of my journal pages today. How fitting for my Monday Madness.
Every day we get a new wave of God’s mercy, grace, and love, and boy have I needed it today! It’s Monday. The kind of Monday to complain about, when nothing seems to go right, and emotions are not being kept in check. Yet it is all my fault that it was that kind of morning; a Monday morning full of sinful, stubborn selfishness! Ugh!!
Have you ever had a day like that?
I knew I could not and did not want to carry on this way for the whole day. I had to stop, and change my attitude. The sooner the better! I took myself to time-out; calmed down; assessed the situation, made a to-do list, and got started.
“Forgive me, God, and help my focus and obedience be only unto you.”
Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Psalm 51:7, 10 NLT
Was yours a Monday of madness? It’s not too late to start over. You can even borrow my to-do list. Take credit for your contribution to the madness, and make a change now. You’ll be glad you did.
